I was born and raised in Norco. It was during my years of participating in Norco Little League and Norco JAAF that I learned what a special community I was growing up in. There were several people throughout this community that supported me as I was growing up and gave meaning of what it meant to be part of a community. I will not say at the time I completely understood, but as I matured, this played a huge role in my future decisions.
Once I graduated from Norco High 2009, I joined the Navy and served onboard the USS Boxer and NCTS San Diego. Serving our county was one of the greatest honors I have ever had. I then went back to school where I achieved a Bachelor’s degree in Business Management from Azusa Pacific University and a Master’s from USC. Coming out of USC I had many great opportunities and chose to pursue a career in commercial real estate development with one the top companies in Southern California, Strategic Development Advisors. Although the opportunity was great and provided for a great financial future; I felt something was missing. I felt a desire to return to my hometown and be part of the community that I grew up in; which would allow me to give back for all the support it has shown me.
As a result I have partnered with my long time friend, Wes Hatton, creating Norco Realty Group; a business that will allow me to help the families of Norco and other surrounding communities within the Inland Empire to achieve their dreams of buying a home, selling their home, or developing their own business of investing in real estate. By doing this, it has allowed me to give back to the community and organizations that have served me by volunteering as a coach for Norco JAAF and participating in many volunteer activities. I look forward to serving all of those that know me and becoming great friends with those that do not but are looking for someone to help them achieve their dreams.
